The Pig
​After making remarkable debut, Sholev is back with compelling, atmospheric and hyper realistic teenage drama about school violence and adolescent loneliness, masterfully directed with non-professional actors.

A shy, chubby, 13-year-old boy is bullied by his classmates every day. Living with just his grandmother while his parents work abroad, he is a lonely and introverted outsider who never responds to the insults and the mockery. Until one day, pushed to his limits, he instinctively hits back with a single, but probably fatal strike which finally puts him into self-initiation. The film premiered at the Sofia International Film Festival 2019, where it won the Special Jury Award, the Best Bulgarian Feature Film Award and the FIPRESCI Prize.
